Gathering Story Spores is the third node of the MycoMythologies: Storytelling Circle. Participants will begin gathering the foundational fungal »genetic« material, spores for their speculative, mythological story through video, audio, notes, and fictional naming.

Mycelium map-making is the fourth node of the MycoMythologies: Storytelling Circle. This node will involve map drawing that will begin to bring a new world into being by embodying speculative places and spore stories in the collective mycelial map.

MycoMythologies: Storytelling Circle will be an on/off_line performative workshop that evokes and employs the workshop attendants’ mycelial mind through nodes of knowledge gathering practices and embodied mycology. Participants will create their own mythological, speculative stories and reflect on some previously generated while learning about World Networks Entanglements, also known as planetary biological infrastructure.

Each workshop will perform two nodes of the mycelial Storytelling Circle: Networking for Expedition, Gathering Spores and Making Maps, and finally, MycoMythological Storytelling.

No prior knowledge is required to participate in the workshop; only a computer, an Internet connection, any browser, and any text editor are enough. The workshops consist of three meetings (23 March, 30 March and 6 April), each lasting two hours, and will take place through the online platform ZOOM.

Applications are open until 19 March 2021 at Participation is free of charge.
